The family of the late Zimbabwe radio disk jockey Peter Johns are in a dilemma.

That Johns , who died in the United Kingdom on Monday, is a legend is not in question.

However, the family cannot answer the question on where the late former Radio 3 deejay will be buried.

ZTN sources in London intimated that the family is also considering cremating him and bringing his remains back home later.

“The other issue slowing a decision on where he is to be buried is that his children are all in Europe, but in different countries,” said a family source.

“As you know a decision on where someone will be buried is a collective one and as we speak consultations are yet to fully take place. We will do the consultations and advise the world on when and where the PJ Your DJ will be buried.”

Johns (60) had been unwell for some time having suffered three strikes as well as undergoing a heart operation.

Meanwhile, tributes continue to pour in for Johns with Power FM (formerly known as Radio 3) saying: “It is with sad hearts that Powerfm heard of the passing of much loved radio DJ Peter Johns. He was affectionately known as “PJ your DJ” & “The Radio Driver”. He hosted the Midday Jam on Radio 3. He left the station in 2002 and was now based in the United Kingdom.”

 “Extremely saddened to hear of the loss of DJ Peter Johns. If you’re a 90s kid, you know he was the soundtrack to our generation. His radio genius will not be forgotten – ever. He made Radio 3 magical. May he rest in peace and may his family be comforted,” tweeted lawyer Fadzai Mahere.

“I won’t forget him saying ‘This one is fresh off the AirZim flight from London’ PJ your DJ,” said sports caster Barry Manandi.
